Euro monster coin purses

Added Feb 23, 2012

by Jodi Wade

Budapest, Hungary






My work mate and I needed somewhere to put our euro coins so I made these for us. I gave her her one. A friend saw my one and asked for it for his daughter…. So I will have to make another for myself. When I was making these the forint was dropping so much. It was 320 ft to 1 euro!!!! I was thinking I would never be able to leave Hungary again with it like that. Hence the “euro monster”. Thankfully now it is a much better exchange rate!

    These are really adorable and funny. There might be demand for this product in more countries than just Hungary.
